    We run our corporate marketing sites on WordPress. It’s not the perfect web content management system for us but, as long as we keep things simple, it does the job reasonably well. When we want to do something that WordPress doesn’t comfortably handle, we tend to use an alternative platform such as Marketo, UnBounce, or develop static web pages. WordPress is great, but one thing to consider when using it is that you make yourself a target to all sorts of hacker attacks. When planning server capacity, we need to accept that a lot of our traffic comes from bots trying to hack into…

    Here is a little programming oddity that we ran across yesterday. onDemand has a number of downloadable Excel reports. To generate a useful Excel file, it is important to tell the Excel library what data type to make each cell. To facilitate this, we had a little utility function called is_float: def is_float(data): try: float(data) return True except Exception: return False That seemed reasonable enough and it worked fine for quite some time. But then we had this customer named Nan (thanks for the business Nan!). The problem with the name Nan is that float(‘Nan’) doesn’t…

  • Priorities

    Seth Gottlieb
    9 Dec 2014 | 2:46 am
    Prioritizing is hard when other people’s requests fight for your attention. It is stressful. You feel attacked; and when you constantly shift your priorities in response to whoever cries the loudest, you get nothing done and you feel defeated. As hard as it is to prioritize your own time, prioritizing what to improve in a product is even harder. The decisions you make on a product have such a large impact. Living under this stress of competing priorities is the life of a product manager. Here are some tricks that I learned. Create and publish a model for prioritization. My…
  • Too Dry Anti-Pattern

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:18 pm
    I do a lot of code reviews. On average, I probably spend an hour a day looking at diffs. I find this an efficient use of time because I frequently spot bugs that wouldn’t be revealed by regular testing. I can also prevent implementations that will create obstacles as we progress through the road map. One of the anti-patterns that I have started to notice is what I call the “Too DRY Anti-Pattern.” For the uninitiated, DRY stands for “Don’t Repeat Yourself”. It is a primary tenet in one of my favorite books: The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to…

    A few months ago we announced the availability of the Lionbridge onDemand Public API. While there are many translation APIs in the marketplace, I think that ours is the most comprehensive. Most translation APIs offer one level of translation quality (for example, machine translation or crowd translation or professional translation). The onDemand API allows you to select a translation type that meets your needs. This means that you can integrate with one API and give your customers lots of options. We also support many different content types. For example, we can translate videos as well as…

    I recently completed SalesHood by my former Salesforce colleague Elay Cohen and wanted to do a quick book review in this post. Net/net:  I think SalesHood, along with Predictable Revenue (by another former Salesforce leader Aaron Ross) are two of the best books out there on contemporary business-to-business high-technology sales. Between these two books, you can capture decades of valuable experience in building and leading sales teams (SalesHood) as well as in building “the machine” that drives opportunity creation for them (Predictable Revenue).

    I was digging through my reading pile and found this about nine-month-old report by Accenture and Oracle entitled The CFO as Corporate Strategist by Donniel Schulman and David Axson of Accenture.  Those who follow Host Analytics might remember David Axson as he’s spoken at several of our user conferences.  (Note:  the 2015 conference is May 18-21 — save the date!) The overall theme of the paper is that the traditional “bean counter” positioning of CFOs is as outdated as the hula hoop, with CFOs becoming more strategic over time, and partnering with the CEO to run…

    2014 wasn’t the year Facebook staked an unshakeable claim for the hearts and minds of brands and consumers. By the time Jan. 1, 2014 dawned, that had already happened. 2014 also wasn’t the year that companies became savvy in their use of social media to promote products.

BYOD still has a lot of benefits to offer, but companies need to go the extra mile in educating and training employees to better handle the numerous security risks they could face. Enforcement of established BYOD guidelines is another excellent way to address security. Only then can businesses proceed to grow with more confidence in tackling whatever threats come their way.

Lots of organizations have struggled to really embrace personalization. There are lots of misconceptions and few people willing to own and organize a new initiative. Personalization doesn’t happen by magic. Some may think that personalization means switching out some copy. Others think it’s a question aligning and integrating systems. Most think it’s somebody else’s problem. The thing is, personalization is everyone’s job. When done right personalization is…

    As a Hippo CMS partner, we’re obviously a big fan of this Java-based platform. So what makes Hippo so great? Marketers and editors love the platform because it’s easy to use and has advanced capabilities, like personalization. Some platforms that have a great experience for editors lack advanced features and technology. This is not true in the case of Hippo CMS, here are some awesome takeaways about their technology:  1) Faceted search usually involves a lot of work and development in other CMS platforms.

    When Sitecore announced Sitecore 8 at their recent Symposium in Vegas, we were excited for this product update. The theme of focusing on digital experiences of Sitecore Symposium has definitely carried through into Sitecore 8. Here’s our overview: From the initial get go, one of the new features that stands out the most in Sitecore 8 is the new User Interface as it is completely different form previous versions of Sitecore. Starting from the login screen, it has a new look and feel with sharp and straight edges.  In addition, the new UI does not have the three editing options.

  • Updating your Sitecore site – Part 2

    2 Oct 2014 | 9:43 am
    Upgrading from Sitecore 6.5 to 6.6 can raise some issues, more specifically, issues related to the Lucene search module. This module has changed much of its functionality between version 2.3.1 (Sitecore 6.5) and version 2.9.4.1 (Sitecore 6.6). Some of Sitecore’s other modules, like Indexviewer and Weblog, use Lucene as well, so you can run into issues with those modules during your update as well. But what about some modules like Taxonomy that doesn’t have support for Sitecore 6.6? In this case, we have a workaround to make it work in the new Sitecore version. The Taxonomy module…

    Updating Sitecore can be a nightmare if you do not take the time to properly plan your update. First at all, you have to be sure about the current Sitecore version that you have and the version that you want to upgrade to. For this, just have to go to the Sitecore Login page and check the info in the right column.   Second, go to Sitecore’s SDN (Sitecore Developer Network) and navigate to the new version. For example, if you want to update from Sitecore.NET 6.5.0 (rev. 110602) to 7.0 rev.140408 (7.0 Service Pack-1), you’d follow this path: SDN à Products à…

    As a Hippo CMS partner, we’re obviously a big fan of this Java-based platform. So what makes Hippo so great? Marketers and editors love the platform because it’s easy to use and has advanced capabilities, like personalization. Some platforms that have a great experience for editors lack advanced features and technology. This is not true in the case of Hippo CMS, here are some awesome takeaways about their technology:  1) Faceted search usually involves a lot of work and development in other CMS platforms.

  • Updating your Sitecore site – Part 2

    2 Oct 2014 | 9:43 am
    Upgrading from Sitecore 6.5 to 6.6 can raise some issues, more specifically, issues related to the Lucene search module. This module has changed much of its functionality between version 2.3.1 (Sitecore 6.5) and version 2.9.4.1 (Sitecore 6.6). Some of Sitecore’s other modules, like Indexviewer and Weblog, use Lucene as well, so you can run into issues with those modules during your update as well. But what about some modules like Taxonomy that doesn’t have support for Sitecore 6.6? In this case, we have a workaround to make it work in the new Sitecore version. The Taxonomy module…

    Updating Sitecore can be a nightmare if you do not take the time to properly plan your update. First at all, you have to be sure about the current Sitecore version that you have and the version that you want to upgrade to. For this, just have to go to the Sitecore Login page and check the info in the right column.   Second, go to Sitecore’s SDN (Sitecore Developer Network) and navigate to the new version. For example, if you want to update from Sitecore.NET 6.5.0 (rev. 110602) to 7.0 rev.140408 (7.0 Service Pack-1), you’d follow this path: SDN à Products à…

However, maybe we've taken the notion of collaboration a little too far and it's time to step back a bit.

    In our last blog post we shared four initial steps to help you optimize the use of your shared drives. These first steps involved creating an information framework, designing the folder structure and establishing user permissions. From there, we were able to implement the new structure on the shared drive itself. However, before your new structure is ready for prime time, you’ll need to take care of a few additional steps. In fact, these final four steps are some of the most important ones if you are to achieve the desired outcomes of reduced risk, avoidance of document duplication, and…

In case you need any extra incentive to finally deal with the issue, we should point out that a poorly managed shared drive has more than a few downsides.

Just when you think your records management program is going relatively smoothly, a big change lands in your lap screaming, “Deal with me!!!” Whether the change originates outside the RM department, such as with corporate moves and mergers and acquisitions, or from within, such as migrating to a new records management system, the change always comes with upsides and downsides. On the downside, change usually means more work, extra hassle and added risk. And it’s hard for many records managers to be overly cheery about that when they are already overworked…

    17 Dec 2014 | 5:00 am
    Many times it's the hidden assumptions, the ones that are never made explicit or never periodically confirmed, that can cause the most damage when they're wrong. In Information Governance and Enterprise Content Management one of the most basic assumptions is that there is one logical document per file with electronic records, and one logical unit per physical document in the paper world. Wrong. Nowadays practically everybody can take multiple documents from word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation applications, and combine them in one large PDF, and scanning operations routinely set…
  • Got the ECM "Bends"? Head About to Explode?

    9 Dec 2014 | 5:29 am
    ECM users sometimes have the Info Gov equivalent of the deep sea diving "bends." This condition occurs when divers ascend too quickly after deep dives and the gas that had been compressed in their bodies decompresses causing painful and sometimes fatal injuries. ECM users sometimes feel like their heads are about to explode after trying to sift through all the irrelevant and redundant documents in their systems. If you or your users are repeatedly experiencing the ECM bends, it's a sure sign that it's time to weed out the irrelevant documents and the redundant copies of relevant content that…
  • Why ECM End Users Don't Care About Block-Level Deduping

    4 Dec 2014 | 5:00 am
    Different IG stakeholders look at ECM systems differently. IT may be  primarily concerned with the resources it takes to store, access, and backup the ECM content and the time it takes for the system to respond to a query. They are apt to view the content in ECM as a given and use technology like block-level deduping to reduce the resources needed to manage the content. The acid test for end users is more likely, "Does the ECM help me find what I want quickly, and painlessly?" End users care about seeing just one copy of the same content, being able to frame precise queries, and being…
  • Rolling Intelligence: Enterprise-Level Paying It Forward

    18 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    The phrase "pay it forward" describes a situation where the beneficiary of a good deed is asked only to perform a similar good deed for the benefit of someone else. Although it is a centuries-old concept (see Wikipedia for quotes from Benjamin Franklin, Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein and others), it was popularized again in the 2000 movie of that name starring Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt, and Haley Joel Osment. A key part of the concept of pay it forward is that individual good acts can have a ripple effect throughout the world. Rolling intelligence is the enterprise-level equivalent of pay it…

Start with a bold vision. Stephen Covey would call this begin with the end in mind. Without a vision it is difficult to select the proper tools, staffing and process. Without a bold vision there are seldom quantum leaps forward in performance or capabilities. Have a vision for all your documents, not just discrete silos. 2. Normalize content. Just as Google…

    It used to be that celebrity sat atop a pedestal, protected behind managers, publicists and their sacred talent agency walls. Celebrity was the product of scarcity, traditionally out of reach of their audience outside of the occasional sighting on ‘E’, People or Us magazine. But a new crop of celebrity, born out of digital – not so long ago laughed at – but now revered, is crossing over into the inner sanctum as they surpass their traditional peers.

In doing so fans had no choice but to buy her album which in-turn made it go platinum and made her responsible for 22% of all album sales last week. Suddenly everyone has woken up! It is no secret that most musicians, including Taylor, make a fraction with streaming when compared to ‘the old days’ of purchase. In fact, it is killing the music industry.
